      Party Affiliation in New York State
      The application contains a section where you can indicate your choice for party affiliation. If you would like to register without designating a party, simply mark the space indicating "I do not wish to enroll in a party."
  • The following parties are recognized in New York State:

  • Democratic
  • Republican
  • Conservative
  • Green
  • Working Families
  • Independence
  • Women's Equality
  • Reform
  • Party Affiliation and the Primary System
    In a Primary Election, only voters registered with one of the parties qualified to hold a primary in New York City may vote to nominate their party's candidate to run in the general election.

    Candidates nominated by the parties for each office then appear on the general election ballot, along with any independent candidates who gain access to the general ballot without running in the party primaries.

    Voting in Primary Elections
    To vote in a primary election you must be enrolled in one of these listed parties: Democratic, Republican, Conservative, Working Families, Independence, Green, except the Independence party, which permits non-enrolled voters to participate in certain primary elections.

    To Change Your Party Affiliation
    You can change your party affiliation by obtaining a Voter Registration Form, indicating the change and sending it to the Board of Elections. We will process the information and send you a new voter card reflecting the change in party. You cannot CHANGE your enrollment and vote in the NEW PARTY of your choice in the same year. Please Note: a change of enrollment will go into affect one week following the General Election. The last day to change your enrollment is the same as the last day to register for the General Election (25 days prior to the date of the General Election).


    What the Law Says
    Your residence address determines the particular contests in which you are eligible to vote. Because of the role that one's address plays in the electoral system, New York State law requires voters to notify the Board of Elections within 25 days of an address change to preserve their voting rights.

    To Make Changes to Your Registration
    You must notify the Board of Elections, in writing, to make any change to your registration (change of address or name). You may send us the change on a Registration application.

    Controls for Keeping a Registration Current
